Nice sequel

Sam, Amazon
7 July 2005
  • Summary: Nice sequel to the original, a little linear but fun. The background soundtrack sometimes makes it hard to hear the characters talking but if you go to settings and adjust it, you should be fine.

Solid gaming with an interesting story

MysterH, Amazon
7 July 2005
  • Summary: I enjoyed this game for the most part; some of the puzzles were challenging particularly near the end of the game. As another reviewer noted, the lead character's accent and speech pattern wears a bit thin at first, (at least if you are not from Boston!) but does grow on you as the story develops. The game was well worth the reasonable price and I have downloaded BM III for more.

Atmospheric and entertaining

L. Bryan, Amazon
7 July 2005
  • Summary: Overall, this was an entertaining game with great atmosphere even if it is a little low on horror. There were no jump in your chair moments to warrant the horror label and certainly nothing in this game that could be considered "an unspeakable horror." The ending was very short given the many hours of gameplay afforded and is definitely built for the sequel Black Mirror III. Graphics: 4/5 Very beautiful and detailed.

Very engaging mystery

PJ SanDiego, Amazon
7 July 2005
  • Summary: As PC adventure games go, Black Mirror II is a pretty good game. In summary: Pros: * Very complete and detailed storyline * Well-developed characters * Quality graphics/ambiance * Extraordinarily long game for the genre and price Cons: * Overuse of dialogue to explain surroundings and objects. As a player, I would rather be shown what's in tool shed instead of the character describing it to me. * Overuse of linear "to-do" tasks.

Brilliant adventuring

Elevation, Play.com

  • Conclusion: The first thing I noticed about Black Mirror was the appalling voice acting. The second thing I noticed was - this doesn't matter a jot ! The music, sound effects, and the many sumptuous environments totally compensated for this. There are a great many scenes to explore here and they're stuffed full of fine details. Now to the one flaw that lets this otherwise brilliant game down : clueless puzzles.

Enjoyable Game with Silly Ending

John M., Gwilliam, Amazon
19 June 2005
  • Summary: This is an older game which I bought as a jewel case a year ago. It was cheaper then but clearly they have "reissued" it. It is worth a look if you like games like "Still Life" or the Cameron Files. I was thoroughly entertained and enjoyed the mystery and the mystical elements. It has a few very annoying elements like not having a clue where to go sometimes or who to tlak to and you have to walk around the mansion way too much but overall I really enjoyed it.

Ueberdurchschnittlich

Ernst Riemenschneider, Amazon
27 November 2011
  • Summary: Das Spiel wurde schnell geliefert, technisch war alles bestens. Ich war etwas skeptisch wegen den Mindestanforderungen weil ich nur einen aelteren Laptop mit 2,2 Gb Dualcore, 1024 mb Absp. und einer integrierten Ati-Grafikk. habe, aber das Spiel lief einwandfrei. Es gab ein paar Augenblicke in den Videosequenzen die nicht ruckelfrei waren, aber es waren wirklich nur sehr kurze Momente. Das Spiel selber liess sich voellig problemlos installieren und spielen.

Es war eine dunkle und stürmische Nacht

  • Summary: Neulich war ich in der Bücherei auf der Suche nach einem älteren Spiel, um es auf meinem doch schon etwas in die Jahre gekommenen Laptop mit in die Weihnachtsferien zu nehmen. Dabei stieß ich auf Black Mirror, das sich als ziemlicher Glücksgriff erwies... Das Spiel Erschienen: 2004 auf deutsch / 2002 auf tschechisch Preis: ab ca.
  • Pros: super - spannende Story, düstere Grusel - Athmosphäre, hübsch gestaltete Hintergründe, gute Sprecher
  • Cons: zu offenes Ende, Schieberätsel, man kann sterben

Schwarzer Spiegel und keine Seele ?

Badsonja21, Ciao
21 June 2006
  • Summary: Sind es nicht die Augen, die zum Abgrund der Seele führen ? Ich dachte es würde immer heißen, Augen - die Spielgel der Seele. Aber in diesem Spiel geht es nicht um Augen, sondern um BLACK MIRROR ! "Donnergrollen" Black Mirror ein Adventure für Menschen ab 12 Jahren Samuel Gorden - der Held der Geschichte, kehrt zurück in das Schloss BLACK MIRROR! Schnell wird klar, warum er damals seine Familie verlassen hatte.
  • Pros: Lange Spieldauer  -  Kann es schon günstig haben  -  Klick & Point Adventure  -  Story  -  Läßt sich gut spielen  -  Rätsel nicht zu schwer und nicht zu leicht
  • Cons: Zu wenig und zu kurze Zwischensequenzen  -  Das Ende
